Re: Y-L ... disappointment

I'm not upset at all. I'm just starting to be able to admit that it wasn't a 110/100 beyond-flawless title. My few suggestions for improvement are still minor, and I wouldn't even call them complaints. Just ... room for improvement.

Re: Why no E3 news

Nintendo is in total control of their show. They also only like to talk about things coming out soon.

Either A) Playtonic had no say in the matter or
B) It's not coming out soon.

And honestly, A happened regardless. Playtonic had no say in this.

Re: Y-L ... disappointment

I guess making their worlds feel more lived-in is a place for improvement in Twoka Laylee. I think the perfect counter-example to anything in YL would be Banjo Tooie. Everything in BT (despite some complaints that it's "big" or "backtracky") feels lived in, and Jolly Roger's Lago...

Re: Kind of surprised about fans reaction.

I haven't seen any of this ballbusting from fans. I've seen maaaaaaaaaaaybe a few people complain about the camera or that one move in particular is overpowered. "Professional" Critics got their heads up their ends because the game is similar to Banjo, and to those critics the fans almost ...

Re: Ideas for worlds

I assumed the DLC would be 1 world, but I hadn't considered 0. I'd be curious to see what the DLC is at ALL if it's not a world though.

Re: Zero Punctuation review for Yooka-Laylee

His claim that YL is to BK as Might9 is to MegaMan is about as far off the mark as you can get. MN9 is a steaming pile of garbage that comes NOTHING close to the source material. Yooka Laylee is a great game in its own right and comes very close to the source material. The rest of the review is more...

Re: Ideas for worlds

The thing with the worlds is - they went into developing the game with the "expanding world" innovation as a core design goal. I have a few thoughts on that right away: 1) Yes, it was innovative. I have to applaud this before I complain about it. It was a unique idea, it was a first shot a...

Re: Wishes For Twooka Laylee (Non official name)

Tooie is by far the better game. It's everything BK is and then more. It's more or less "Big, Interconnected BK". I really like YL but after reading this thread realize they could have done a bit more with the story aspects. The worlds, while they have themes, have no overarching story wha...

This is where I noticed it. It has also changed since the initial demo, but yep.

Yep, do most of your positioning mid jump. I think I actually more or less didn't move in that challenge unless it was mid-air.

Re: Yooka-Laylee: General Discussion Thread

Something I've been wondering... Capital B. Is it a reference or a joke I don't get? Cause I don't really get why he's called that. Also he says every now and again, a reptile once came through here before, he was obsessed with crystals, what's that a reference to? I assumed Capital B was a referen...

Re: Secret Pirate Treasure (possible spoilers)

Pointless, how so? You know a computer can look for information in other files right? It would be trivially easy for the next game to check your Yooka Laylee save folder for the presence of those pirate treasures.

Re: Gloomy Gem Grotto

Is that the really dark room where you need to use the firefly glow to navigate? Also every surface is slippery and require you to use the roll move?

I really didn't think it was that bad :?

Re: Wishes For Twooka Laylee (Non official name)

Banjo Kazooie actually does have backtracking. Between Gobi's Valley and Freezeezy. Both levels require an element of the other. I'd like to see them keep the backtracking, and add interconnections between the required worlds like how Tooie had. Chuffy, the water pipes often connected, etc. If they ...

Re: Wishes For Twooka Laylee (Non official name)

I wish that Twooka Laylee is the official name. Followed by Yooka Laythree. I liked the boss from the Marsh. The wall bosses are forgettable, agreed. For worlds I'd like to see 7-8. I don't have any problems with the worlds in YL1 but if they stayed about the same size and kept improving (like these...

Re: Yooka-Laylee: Out Now!

I really disagree on the "too open" point. Banjo Kazooie AND Tooie worlds were totally open. You walk in, then you can go anywhere. Sometimes there's light funneling (most levels slapped a door or path right in your vision to "suggest" a path) but they all plopped you in and let ...
